(I've posted this sort of thing here a couple years ago and it was well received; but of course, in the spirit of the missions of lj communities, please do let me know if you'd rather not have posts like this in the community, and I will respectfully take it down.)

Do you have a huge mess?
No time to clean between work, kids, pets, etc.?
Dishes pile up so much that you've forgotten you even have a kitchen counter?
Laundry to the ceiling?

Then I can help!
I have been cleaning for years, and have references available. I am most helpful with bigger messes.
Tasks that I can help with include doing dishes and general kitchen clean-up; doing & folding laundry; organizing clothes drawers and closets; sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping; sorting papers and books; and more!
I can even offer childcare, elder and disabled companionship, some cooking, and some secretarial help. If you have other odd jobs you need help with, let's talk!

The best part is, my fare is negotiable. We can discuss what fee would be the most convenient for the both of us. I know how expensive services are in this city, and that those who need help the most often are those who cannot afford the standard rates. I am here to help you!

I am located in Twin Peaks, but will be happy to travel anywhere in San Francisco that is accessible by public transportation!
I will be leaving my full time job in a few weeks, so I will be available to help you on a regular basis! Weekly, bi-weekly, you name it!

Thank you for reading. Email me at richips @ livejournal.com to discuss the possibilities. I look forward to meeting you!


Summer Acting Camp For Kids

Not the same old children’s acting camp.

Dragon Productions Theatre is offering a two week program for middle school aged children (ages 11 - 14) who are serious about learning more about the craft of acting.

What We Teach
The two week camp provides an overview of acting technique - from Stanislavsky to Meisner to Spolin and Viewpoints, your budding artist will get the tools necessary to step up to the next level in the art of acting. Students will choose their own scenes and will rehearse works from ancient Greek plays, Shakespeare, and more contemporary comedy and drama. The camp is led by two professional Bay Area actors and the class size is limited to 12 students for more personalized attention. The two week classes end in an acting showcase that the whole family can attend - every student will perform on the Dragon stage.

June 20 - July 1, 2011 from 11a - 2p with a Final Actor's Showcase on Saturday, July 2

535 Alma St.
Palo Alto, CA 94301

$300 for the two week session*

This is a really fantastic, very challenging camp for tweens. If you know another place I should post it, please let me know! 
Want a lovely rooster?
He'll make beautiful babies. We won't ask you whether you'd prefer him for soup, but he's gorgeous, non-aggressive, would make beautiful babies.
Available in 94580, beyond by arrangement.

I live in Kelseyville and I'm suppose to be down in the bay area on the 19th so I was wondering if anyone would like to hangout, I'm up for meeting new people.

A play about truth, trust, and betrayal…or is it? This dramatic-comedy explores a tangled web of love and lust
with more than a few twists and turns of its own that will leave you questioning what you can really believe.

Team Scrabble Seeks Serious Scrabblers

Do you like Scrabble? Do you want to play Scrabble sometime this month?

Every day for the month of January Team Scrabble will be playing a game of Scrabble with a total stranger (or group of strangers). Photographs will be taken of the completed boards and compiled in a book which we hope demonstrates something about language, word association, semiotics, or perhaps just carefully planned belligerence. Want to play? Add TeamScrabble on Twitter to find out when our next match will be! http://twitter.com/teamscrabble

Christmas Magic?

When I was a little kid, in New York City, my mother would take me to see the department store windows every Christmas. I know that this is San Francisco, and not New York, and that department stores are largely a thing of the past, but I want to take my 3 year old to see something like those department store windows, which I still remember as wonderful and magical. I'm going to take her to see the kittens in Macy's windows, but is there anything else downtown that would be nice for a 3 year old to see? I'm not looking to pay to see Santa in the mall; I'm thinking more about decorations to look at.

Remove engraving

I recently bought an engine-turned slide belt buckle, but as the tradition goes, initials have been engraved on the buckle. The buckle is solid sterling silver, so I think it should be easy to buff out if someone had the tools for it. Does anyone know where I can go in the city to get this job done? Will any jeweler do?

Also, does anyone know how much this might cost me?
